Just wanted to see if anyone had tried the process at www.aluminyze.com where the image is baked into the aluminum sheet. It's something I can't reproduce on my own, so I have ordered a couple of images and am just wondering if there has been some previous guinea pigs in FM land at all? It looks very interesting, but there are a few things I don't like, even before my prints come. .jpeg only uploads no profiles available

What do you guys think of it?

never found appeal for that. we print on alu sheets because some customers like it on abstract photos and waterscapes but...
color profile and jpeg only uploads wont bother me, the texture of the metal as well as its color makes it anyway so different that it won't matter.
you just have to have eye for what kind of shot looks ok and what not on it.

Not familiar with their product.
But I am wondering if the technology and potential output is similar to aluminum prints at BayPhoto
Quality is excellent. I havent done enough to know, but matching the finish with the subject and your desired look is a significant variable.

I made a comparison of an image printed on aluminum (source unknown) and the same image printed on metallic paper earlier today (art fair vendor) to see it in "real world'. My previous experience with metallic paper was it had a bit of a cast in the neutrals.

Comparing the two, I could see the cast in the metallic paper again, while the aluminum seemed much more neutral in the same areas.
